Psychics Aren't the Answer

I recently overheard a troubling conversation that I feel compelled to discuss, especially because I am concerned I did not make the most of the moment. Frankly, I am not sure I made a mistake. I will spell out the details and allow you to decide. But at the very least, I hope to learn from my situation and that others will also be better prepared as a result.

What's With the Bunnies?

With the Easter season just passed, we have a good question from a young person. He asks, “What do rabbits have to do with Easter?”

How Do I Get to Heaven?

What do you think you have to do to go to heaven? Do you feel like you deserve to be there when you die? That’s a trick question, as I intend to show. Sadly, many people spend their whole lives trying to answer it. If that describes you, stop. The first thing we need to know, the first element of salvation, is knowing that we cannot achieve it. Nothing you can do will get you there, and you can never deserve the blessings of God (Rom. 3:23).

Don't Deny Yourself

That’s a clickbait-y title and it might not make it to the end of the editorial process, but it felt like a good place to start. A frequent impression you get from people who are not interested in Christianity is that their lives are good enough as it is. If Jesus is your answer, good for you, but they don’t need Him. That has a number of implications for the witness of the church, but the particular one I have in mind is how it relates to behavior and enjoyment.

For the Survivors

A few weeks ago, I did a piece on abortion and the proper Christian understanding of it. After I published it, I was asked to do something similar in regard to assisted suicide. The series that followed delved into the nature of human life, the philosophy behind the push for legalized assisted suicide, the theology of the sanctity of life, and the implications of the debate.
